“Vacation feeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Very neat scenery with a wall of mountains as background for the lake. There is a cute island and a water fountain at the eastern shore, not far from the Lovers' Bridge. There are several green areas spanning the space between the old town and the lake .

“Lovely - plenty of different ways to enjoy the lake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We were fortunate to enjoy a boat trip out on the lake on a beautiful sunny day - definitely worth doing and great for children - we went out for an hour,but to hop on and off at leisure must be really nice.

To just sit and enjoy the view from the waters edge is very pleasant, but there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the lake : ride,walk,skate or even swim !

“A Boat trip is a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We took a round trip and stopped off at Talloires, the "Gastronomical Centre of the Area" where we had a delightful lunch and wine at Le Cottage overlooking the beautiful lake. We then caught the afternoon return trip after strolling through the quaint town.

“Superb - beautiful Lake Annecy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

There is nothing to dislike about Annecy or the lake - a fantastic holiday venue for all the family with sailing, swimming in crystal clear alpine water, cycling around a dedicated cycle track that is over 22 miles long and borders the lake. The hire charges are very reasonable too. Hop-onHop-off small ferry-type boats traverse the lake every hour and there are so many places to stop visit we ran out of time - just wish we had stayed two weeks rather than one.
